Mobility's Now Even More ecoNomical - Thanks To Vauxhall

Two new models join the Vauxhall line up on the Motability scheme this summer, promising top environmental performance, better than ever economy and all the customer care to be expected of the top mobility manufacturer.

The Corsa ECO is based on the Corsa Club, already a favourite with Motability’s customers for delivering value and comfort. Combining a specially programmed version of the Corsa’s Easytronic gearbox with a 1.0 litre engine, enables the car to return 57.6mpg in combined fuel consumption mode, and a staggering 70.6mpg (extra urban). Environmental considerations are also taken care of, with the car producing just 118g/km CO2.

Now Vauxhall has made the Corsa ECO available with NIL advance payment on the Motability scheme, meaning customers who seek a frugal car need look no further. And Vauxhall has also added the spoilers and side skirts from the Corsa Sport to cut drag still further and enhance the Corsa’s already good looks.

Joining Corsa ECO on the Motability scheme is the Astra ECO, its diesel-powered bigger sister. The Astra has been available through general sale since November 2000 and has been generating a reputation as one of the most ultra-frugal cars on the road. Aerodynamic modifications, optimum gearing and a direct injection 1.7DTi engine all combine to produce fuel economy of over 80mpg on the open road. It also sets new standards for environmental emissions, only 119g/km CO2.

And the Astra doesn’t skimp when it comes to in-car comfort either, generously equipped with air conditioning, power steering, an adjustable steering column, CD/radio, electric windows and remote central locking. An advance payment of only £950 means that the Astra ECO affordably makes life that bit more comfortable, practical and accessible.
